this is not some future shock troop helmet, and it is not a LucasArts mock-up for some prequel trooper helms. this is what French dudes fight fires in.

how sweet looking is that thing? the gold plated face shield is nuts, and i am a little sad that i couldn't find a picture of one in action. as it is i had to hack a pdf from some manufacturing company and print-screen it. totally saving this for my clippings file for inspiration when drawing random sci-fi crap. i love it's blend of old style helmets and new tech. so sweet. that shield looks like it's styled after the armor you can see at the Metropolitan Museum.

the helmets are made by MSA Gallet.
